(GAS Therapy is a video series I made on YouTube, focusing on sharing cheaper and better musical gears solutions, now it also becomes a plugin brand, I will continue to share my knowledge under multiple formats. Check it out https://www.youtube.com/c/playpm)
Demo & Tutorial:
- Start point
- Load file - support for audio & video file (only Mac&iOS version supports video for now)
- Copy file name & open file folder
2 hidden controls:
- Start point (left side of the tiny screen)
- End point (yes, you guessed it)
- 64 bit Intel & M1 & M2 macOS support, 64 bit Intel & AMD Windows support
- iOS standalone & AUv3 supported ($0.99 in App Store)
- Deal with sample files in a clean way, no file duplication or create annoying peak file
- Automation supported
- No IAP
- No internet needed
- No virtual keyboard (just play it with DAW keyboard or external one)
Grab iOS version
- AU - copy & paste the extracted component file to this folder: yourcomputername/Library/Audio/Plug-ins/Components/
- VST3 - copy & paste the extracted VST3 file to this folder: yourcomputername/Library/Audio/Plug-ins/VST3/
- VST3 - copy & paste the extracted VST3 file to this folder: C:\Program Files\Common Files\VST3
(Or any folder you like, but remember to set scan folder in your DAW)
* If you couldn't open it on Mac due to signing issue, just open it first, then open Security&Privacy in System Preference, select General tab (not needed for Ventura), click Open Anyway, reopen your DAW.
* If clicking Open Anyway doesn't working, follow these steps:
- Quit System Preference
- Open Terminal and run
sudo spctl ––master-disable
(Need to use computer password, this will let your Mac run softwares from unidentified developer, no hurt, will still ask you every time when using this kind software.)
- Reopen DAW, clear plugin cache and re-scan plugins
- Get the warning, then go back to System Preference - Security & Pravicy - General (not needed for Ventura) - Open Anyway.
* Find the plugin file, right-click and choose "Open With" Terminal.app.
* Remember to try restart your computer, especially for macOS Catalina.
* If you couldn't find the plugin in your GarageBand/Logic Pro X, first you may have to clear GB/Logic's plug-ins cache:
- Quit GarageBand/Logic
- Open Finder - click Go in status bar - hold Option key then click Library
- Remove ~/Library/Caches/AudioUnitCache folder
- Remove ~/Library/Caches/com.apple.logic10 folder
- Remove ~/Library/Caches/com.apple.garageband10 folder
- Remove ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.audio.InfoHelper.plist file
- Reboot your Mac and launch GarageBand/Logic
Now your Mac will rescan all the AUs.
If not, open Terminal, first run:
killall -9 AudioComponentRegistrar
It solves this problem perfectly while I was testing my plugin.
Any tip would help me and my channel a lot!
